Nancy, the minister responsible for the Public Land Transport Commission (SPAD) and Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) for Sarawak and Sabah, said the description of the project was among matters discussed in the meeting that lasted for almost an hour.

She said her courtesy call to the chief minister today, was to provide information on her position and portfolio, primarily those concerning Sarawak, in terms of public transport.

“We have listened to the chief minister’s explanation on LRT in the state, and I need to know what the goal is, and how can I help as a federal minister,” she told reporters after the courtesy call at the Wisma Bapa Malaysia here today.

In March, Abang Johari said the state government would formulate long-term plans that included the introduction of LRT services that would link Kuching, Samarahan and Serian, adding the journey would take 30 minutes.

Nancy, who is also Batang Sadong MP, said they had also discussed issues related to her constituency such as housing, programmes for the community, business licences and others, and received positive feedback from Abang Johari.
